How to Enable New Boot Sound on iPhone 14


For its new iPhone 14 line, Apple has added an optional accessibility feature that plays a sound when the iPhone is turned on and off. As we shared with you after the keynote, the iPhone therefore imitates the Mac with a little startup melody. Here’s how to enable it for those interested.

A tip for the startup sound

Apple added a little startup and shutdown music as an accessibility feature after many blind and visually impaired users asked the company for a clear way to tell if their iPhones had restarted. But the other good news is that anyone can enable them, like the sound on Mac that returned with the M1 models.

First, here’s what Apple chose as its sound:

Here’s how to enable the new feature on Apple’s 2022 phones, namely iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max:

  • Launch the application Settings on your iPhone 14.
  • Scroll down and tap Accessibility.
  • Below Hearingto push on Audio-visual.
  • Activate the button next to “Startup and shutdown sound“.

That’s all we can say about it. Now you’ll know when your iPhone 14 has started up or shut down without even having to look at the screen. To disable the sounds, just do the reverse manipulation in Settings.

Note that this new feature is not available on older iPhones, we checked on an iPhone 13 in particular.
